Girls Trip -Out in Theaters TODAY!

By London “The Branding Blogger”


 I was fortunate to see this HILARIOUS movie about 3 weeks ago at the AMC in Columbus Circle Private Screening .  This movie exceeded my expectations.  I had no idea what to expect since it was not on my radar until recently.

Malcolm D Lee out did himself directing this movie.  The movie reminded me of a In Living Single meets the Hangover.  Almost every scene had a moment that resulted in loud, hold my belly, gasp for air laughter.  The casting couldn’t have been any better.  The chemistry with all of the ladies was refreshing.  It was great seeing Jada and Queen Latifa on the Big Screen together.  I loved the the scene when they entered the club and that set it off remark was made -Perfection!  Tiffany Haddish  was surprisingly great.  I looked forward to her roles as I think she is simply hilarious!  I’m excited to see how she develops as an actor on Hollywood Screens.
Yesterday, Queen Latifa was o Hot 97 Ebro show sharing her insights about the movie.  She opened up to how delightful it was working with the talented cast -So much where it didn’t feel like work.  She admitted that she planned on going to the theaters several times to see it -Like she did when Set It Off premiered.  (It’s THAT Good)
Since I watched the movie, a lot of scenes replay in my mind.  The movie inspired me to make memorable moments with my girls as much as possible on the adventures we take this summer.
I definitely plan on going back to the theaters when the movie is released to the public and share this experience again with more friends.
Check below for the Trailer:
I would recommend every lady to grab your girlfriends this weekend and hit the Movies for some bonding and laughs -You wont be disappointed.  Especially since you’ll get some ab work in as each scene will have you hanging over your seats , holding your belly due to laughter.  Queen Latifa suggested seeing it a couple times because the jokes are back to back and your laughter will cause you to miss another punchline.
Beat the heat this weekend and hit the the air conditioned movies to see Girl Trip.

Feel free to share your insight on the movie!

What Designs to expect as Coach and Kate Spade Combine into One Brand

By London “The Branding Blogger”


In May, Coach announced that they were acquiring their competitor Kate Spade for $2.4 Billion.  If you’re anything like myself who appreciates a classic Kate Spade clutch and the Bold patterns of a Coach exclusive to add a little pop to your outfit, this came as big news.

Kate Spade’s style is more sleek and conservative and although Coach has a  collection that is quite similar to the traditional look of Kate Spade designs, this multinational luxury fashion designer incorporates bold patterns, colors and shapes in a lot of their collections.  It is believed that this merger took place to increase more sales in the Millennial Demographic.

Ever since it has been announced of this epic merge, we are starting to see new bags that fuse the two brand identities  together:

hayes street fabric mini isobel

Hayes street fabric mini isobel

This go-anwhere bag is made from a bright striped fabric and trimmed with black leather, this new version of our hayes street mini isobel is as chic as it is practical.


haute stuff parrot cage bag

Haute stuff parrot cage bag

This wicker and-leather wristlet is made to look like a bamboo birdcage playful touch to everything from jeans to dresses

dora wedges

Dora wedges

These patent wedges boast a heel that’s made to look like a (very stylish) taco truck–they’re perfect with jeans, shorts and solid-hued sundresses.



With the playful designs, the probability of grabbing the attention (and dollars) from the Millennial demographic who tend to be more attracted to accent accessories, color blocking, and making statements is very promising.
